On September 24, 2014, Alcor’s membership reached 1000 for the first time.
This is the first time any cryonics organization has had this many members with full financial and contractual arrangements for cryopreservation. (Counting all classes of members, total membership is 1255.)
This represents a tiny fraction of the population of the United States and an even smaller fraction of global population. Alcor and other cryonics organizations have a very long way to go until they have persuaded a substantial portion of the population to make cryonics arrangements. Even so, this is a milestone worth noting and celebrating.
